This is the dramatic moment a gang of men were arrested at gunpoint in the street during a huge weapons raid by armed police.

Officers armed with assault rifles swooped on the five men after boxing in their BMW in Muirfield Gardens, Kings Norton, Birmingham.

Body-cam footage captured the shocked gang being held at gunpoint by officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) on May 13 last year.

Officers can be heard shouting: "Armed police, stay where you are, on the ground. Get on the floor now. Put your hands in the air. Keep them there."

After bundling one suspect from the car, another orders: "Get out, stay there, on your f***ing belly. Put your hands behind your back. Don’t move."

Carl Brookes, 38, Richard Davis, 36, Callum Meah, 26, Jordan Feeney, 28, and Robert Clark, 32, were all detained during the raid.

Officers recovered a loaded handgun, ammunition, knives and sledgehammer from the gang who were ‘dressed up and kitted out to do some harm’.

Clark, who was wearing a rolled up balaclava on his head, was also found with a knife in his inside pocket.

The Birmingham men were all charged with possession of a prohibited firearm, possession of prohibited ammunition, possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence. Clark was also charged with possession of an offensive weapon/bladed article.

All five men pleaded guilty and were sentenced on Thursday (December 8) to jail spells ranging from between five to seven years at Birmingham Crown Court.

NCA Birmingham Branch Commander Mick Pope said: "These men had a loaded gun, ammunition and an array of weaponry in their possession when they were arrested.

“There is no doubt in my mind that these men were dressed up and kitted out to cause somebody, somewhere, some harm and it is only the intervention of NCA officers that prevented this from happening.
